• Mendoza, Palacios, Acedo, Borjas, Páez Pumar & Cía. has been very active in the telecommunications area, since the beginning of such area’s modern development in Venezuela, starting with our participation in the privatization of Compañía Anónima Nacional Teléfonos de Venezuela (CANTV), the most important privatization that has taken place in Venezuela. As legal advisors for the winner consortium of the privatization process, we were directly involved in the subsequent reorganization of the resulting corporation (including the global offer of its ADS) and in its operation as the major telecommunications company. We represent Telefónica, the most important Spanish telecommunications company (and a key shareholder of CANTV, part of the winning consortium in the privatization), in all matters related to its stake in CANTV, including the “nationalization” process carried out in 2007. In a major operation, we assisted Telefónica Móviles S.A. (currently merged into Telefónica) regarding its acquisition of Telcel C.A. (now Telefónica Venezolana C.A.) in 2004, as part of a multinational operation where Telefónica Móviles acquired the assets held by BellSouth Corporation in Latin America.
  • From a technical point of view, we have participated in the study, analysis and review of the applicable regulatory regime in the telecommunications area, and have been directly involved in the permanent process of analyzing and reviewing legal provisions. Our experience in this field refers not only to the regulatory frame for the basic public telephone service, but also to private networks, cellular services, value added services, telephone directory services, and cable television, among others.
